Barbara Windsor has been an irrepressible presence on film, television, stage and the radio for over fifty years. She's the very definition of a 'national treasure' and, as our selection of her early 1960s films will show, an arresting screen presence that has earned her both BAFTA plaudits and mass affection. Barbara also has a story or two to tell, and her interview event promises to be a real highlight.
